I think I might safely say that I turned to Christian Science on the New Year evening of the year 1914. It was while standing on the porch of the hall at a New Year dance that a great desire came to me to live aright. I was alone at the time, and I resolved to give my life for the uplift and enlightenment of my fellow-men. At the time I did not know where or how; I only knew that I was going to search for something that would enable me to do good to humanity. For seven or eight weeks I searched but found nothing. I looked at the Bible, and thought if only I could find a religion that did the healing work as Jesus commanded, I would believe in that religion.

About the end of February my desire was fulfilled, and I knew I had found that for which I was yearning. At that time my sister was wonderfully helped through the application of Christian Science. Upon my mother's return after being with her, she brought a copy of The Christian Science Journal. At that time I was suffering from chronic indigestion and rheumatism. I had not spent an hour reading the Journal before I knew Christian Science was what I was yearning for. I resolved to go to a practitioner and ask for treatment. It was a week before I went to one, and during that time I gave up my physical culture exercises and all material remedies. When I retired at night, after reading the Journal, there would come to me a great conviction that I was going to be healed. I can gratefully say that in one treatment I was healed. The practitioner told me to go home and eat whatever I wished. I did so, and have enjoyed good health ever since. I have never regretted listening to the "still small voice;" for had I not listened, I might not have found Christian Science
